Summer Lovin' Faves


This summer has gone by a lot quicker then I've expected. 
I've managed to take a break from social media and explored closer to home.

Ever since moving to Vancouver last year, I didn't realize how refreshing it is to be able to have so many outdoor goings and the crazy food scene. I love the hussle and bussle of it all!

In this post, I would like to share with you a few things that made my summer delightful.

PRADA Cinema Sunglasses | Where would I be without you? This summer we had a crazy heat wave with the sun beaming at every angle. I'm so glad to have these beautiful shades to protect my eyes from UV rays. The frame is the perfect shape for my petite face, it tends to not slip off my nose and the bend on the arm is perfect and it doesn't make me feel too tight or uncomfortable. 

If you're looking for a new pair of sunglasses, I highly recommend Smart Buy Glasses. Use code "STEPHANIE10for 10% off your next purchase.

Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly | So I've been using this for the summer to keep my skin hydrated and sealed from pollution. As most of you know, it's been so smokey from the forest fires that the air is giving me allergic reaction. So to protect myself, I've decided to add in a hydrating jelly that protects the skin from pollution and gives me the hydration needed to keep my makeup intact. The texture of this jelly is great, once applied it gives you this radiant glow and "bouncy feeling" at touch.

Indoor Plants | The highlight this year would definitely be my ongoing collection of plants.
I started off with a lot of succulents last year but this year I went on to the tropicals and trailing greens. Plants definitely teaches me patience and overall makes me happy. I would definitely recommend adding greens to your home to soothe the eye and of course, for fun!

Hope everyone had a lovely summer! Now let's make memories for fall.

LANEIGE | The Key To Hydration


My constant battle for hydrated skin is always something I can't seem to prolong.
Maybe it's because of the lack of water intake or my stressful lifestyle but I've been on the search  for something that fits my routine.

After trying many different products, I seem to always come back to Laneige. And here's why:

One product out of their line I would really like to talk about today is there Water Sleeping Mask.

Clearly, they have changed their packaging and I'm obsessed. It's like this semi see-through blue container and it comes with a clear applicator which makes it very easy and clean to use. 

I usually apply this all over the face by lightly spreading the product with the applicator and dressing heavier on the areas of my face that are more pore-visible.

You then let the product work its magic overnight and you'll wake up with radiant, supple and dewy skin. It is formulated with highly concentrated hydro ionized mineral water and no parabens or phthalates. 

Overall, I love using this product because it's easy to use - especially for lazy people like me. It has a really de-stressing vibe because when you apply it on, there's this cooling effect on the skin and the scent is absolutely amazing and calming. The texture plays a big part as it feels like a gel but not a coating gel, more so something that absorbs in your skin right away. 

 So if you're on a hunt for more hydrated skin, no need to search - I highly recommend Laneige.

Hello, how are you?


Just wanted to give everyone a quick update. I haven't been blogging as much as I use to. Sometimes I feel like my feeling is so hard to describe in words. That's why I'm on Instagram more often, it just feels like pictures are easier to explain. But none the less, I would like to focus on my blog more and keep my personal diary running. 

So in this post, I've decided to choose six of my recent Instagram photo that better describes 
"what I'm up to lately?".

So at the start of the year, my husband and I made a bold decision to move to a new city. We bought our first home and literally re-renovated the whole thing. From Calgary to Vancouver, the transition felt easy to us as my husband was born and raised in Hong Kong and I use to live in Vancouver when I was younger so it always had a sweet spot for me to be in a busy city. The only part that made me feel like this "whole thing" was a bad idea, was the fact that I moved away from my four sisters. Yes, I have four sisters haha. So, because of that - I always find an "excuse" every month to go back to Calgary and visit them - cause you know, "sister fever".  

Once the spring/summer seasons came into town, I began to garnish my home with plants. Just cause, I read about it somewhere where plants help purify the air and the colour "green" is easy on the eyes. So I garnished the crap out of my house to the point that I literally became the new "plant lady". But I have to say, dealing with plants is not easy - it's tough but fun because you have to figure out their "personality".

One of my best friends got married this year in the beautiful area of North Vancouver and she put me in the position of coordinating her wedding. Which at first scared every living cell in my body but I do like "taking control". Her whole vision was absolutely beautiful and I was so happy to coordinate alongside her bridal party and make her wedding dreams come true. Definitely a creativeness I didn't know I had.

My hand essentials have been pretty minimal this year. Every day I rocked out with my simple watch from Medium and my dainty rings from Joie De Cristaux. I feel like every year has its arm vibes and this year I've been really liking Joie De Cristaux, not only are we good friends in person but I feel like our personalities are very similar. Super happy to wear her designs and show the people the local makers and how amazing supporting a local business is. Love you Amanda -xoxo

I don't eat out as much as I use to, cause you know "bills, groceries..." But I always enjoy a good girls night out with my friends in Calgary (ps. we all met through Instagram). We came across, Ten Foot Henry and they are a local restaurant that serves family style dining alongside vegetables being the main anchor. They create unique and distinctive flavours that will get your taste buds saying "wow". But the other thing that made me really happy when I walked in, is the abundance of indoor plants hanging everywhere. I said to myself - Goals! 

So for those of you that have read my blog before or follow me on Instagram - my side focus is Mind The Minimal.  It's a small local business where I handcraft concrete into unique forms and shapes into home ornament/decoration. I make products along the line of planters, ring holders, concrete candles - anything I can think of to mix concrete and minimalism together. I've started MTM roughly a year and a half now and I'm excited to say I finally have fifteen stockists and I'm hoping to expand more this coming year. So please check out our Instagram and let me know what you think.


Well, this concludes the majority of what happened this year. I hoped you liked this post - I feel like it's different but I'm really liking this way of explaining my Instagram and not just the short captions.
